Anyone know where I can find a list of the books in the Kids in MS Coleman's Class series? I have the first five and have read Halloween Parade, Holiday Time, and Science Fair but am wondering what the others are. I know there are more because Science Fair is like #10 or something. I can't find a list, though, when I type it in the search. Thanks!

^Well...say something about them so we have something to reply to.
These aren't really on my radar as something I need to buy. Are they in 1st person like the Little Sister books? I love Hannie's point of view in the super specials so if she narrated a whole book I might have to track it down. I don't have that much interest in the rest of Karen's classmates. The class was basically the three Musketeers, Ricky, Bobby, Natalie and Pamela. Everyone else was just a prop for whatever Karen was doing in each book.

I've had Class Play for like 18 years and I just read it yesterday, lol. Since there are no separate threads, I guess I'll discuss it here (in a very unorthodox manor ).
Leslie wants to play Alice in the class production of Alice in Wonderland. Only she and Karen (who she does NOT like) try out for the part, and of course Karen gets it. Leslie is cast as Tweedledee (with her best friend Jannie cast as Tweedledum). (OT -- How weird to have a class with kids named Hannie and Jannie. In my school there were usually multiple Caitlins, Brittanys, and Jessicas, but no rhyming names.) Leslie is so disappointed in her role she acts like a complete brat. She tries to sabotage the play, and when Jannie catches her and threatens to tell on her, they get into a fight and Leslie decides to drop out of the play. Leslie eventually realizes that she is making things difficult for everyone and rejoins the play and ends up having fun.
Okay, now that I've done the synopsis thing, here's what I thought. It was hard to sympathize with Leslie as she whined and complained about not getting her way. I'm not a Karen fan, so I really wanted to be on her side, but it was hard, lol. The book is pretty predictable, but it's still a cute enough read.
If I ever happened to find anymore KIMCC books, I'd definitely read them.

^ They're really good! I recommend them.
The one thing I remember the most about Class Play is how Leslie doesn't like pancakes. Someone actually asked Ann why she did that (on Facebook, I believe) and Ann replied that she tried to make Leslie more "interesting" that way. Anyway, that sticks out the most for me.
